1. Which of your characters is your favorite?
That can vary based on what I'm writing but probably Philip Guthrie. Wounded, cranky, stubborn, sexy-as-all-get-out. He was a somewhat antagonist in GABRIEL'S GHOST, morphed into a supporting protagonist in SHADES OF DARK, got his own story in HOPE'S FOLLY. It was fabulous watching a character grow.
2. Tell me about your travels.
3. Coffee, tea, or milk?
Pu-erh tea (the best is from Bana Tea Company) or double espresso coffee
4. What else can you do besides write?
5. Who are you reading right now?
MEMO FROM THE STORY DEPT. : Secrets of Structure and Character - Christopher Vogler and David McKenna
6. Pop culture or academia?
7. What is the toughest scene you ever wrote?
8. Where do you find your inspirations to write?
9. Food you could eat everyday.
Apples and peanut butter. That's my usual lunch.
10. Are you into sports or other physical activities?
11. What kind of music speaks to you?
12. Do you outline your stories or do they just take you along for the ride?
I'm a leap-frog plotter/pantser. Plot three, write three. Plot the next three, write three. And so on.
13. Celebrity crush.
14. Who are the biggest influences on your work?
CJ Cherryh. She is the master of SF/Space Opera and I've been reading her for decades. She's an auto-buy for me. Also Julie Czerneda's TRADE PACT books (I learned of Czerneda because Cherryh recommended her) and Tanya Huff's VALOR series.
15. Do you still watch cartoons?
